We Stand With CEU

Global Medieval Faculty and Students express their Support for CEU!

The Penn Global Medieval Studies faculty and students express solidarity with Central European University and voice their concern at the proposed legislative changes to CEU’s status in Hungary. These changes would endanger the academic freedom vital for CEU’s continued operation and would strike a blow against the academic freedom that enables many institutions of higher education to flourish. It would also set a dangerous precedent for academic life in other countries.


 Central European University is home to one of the most renowned departments of Medieval Studies. It would be heartbreaking to the Medieval Studies community worldwide to lose this important institution.


 We urge the government to withdraw the proposed legislation!
